Now, let’s talk about the challenge group so far. As I mentioned yesterday, April was a rough month for my schedule, and I packed on about 10 pounds. But I’m using this challenge week to drop that weight, and I woke up this morning to find that I’ve already lost four pounds!
But here’s the thing: did I really lose four pounds yesterday? That’s a question that many people struggle with when they’re working on losing weight. How often should you check your weight? Should you check it in the morning or the afternoon? Should you put all your measurements in a spreadsheet or get an app?
The truth is, you don’t need to obsess over the numbers. What’s important is measuring your progress over time. Fluctuations in weight can be caused by water weight or the amount of food you’ve eaten that day. It’s okay to see some variation day-to-day, as long as you’re making progress over the course of a week or a month.
The key is to remember that what gets measured gets managed. You need to keep track of your progress in order to make adjustments and stay on track. But you don’t need to beat yourself up over every ounce or become a “weight accountant.” Focus on the big picture and how you feel overall.
At the end of the day, nothing measures weight loss better than how well your clothes fit. That’s the biggest indicator of progress, and it’s something you can feel every day. So don’t stress over the numbers – focus on your overall health and well-being.
I hope this advice helps you all as you work towards your fitness goals. Remember, you can join my challenge group at any time by visiting www.JoeJustice.org/join or sending me an email. Let’s work together to achieve our goals and elevate ourselves to new heights!
